The ultimate goal of health education is to enable individuals to use knowledge in ways that promote positive behavioral change; therefore, the mission of the department is to empower students to make healthful choices in all dimensions of their lives. Students are encouraged to explore health-related problems confronting contemporary society so as to enable them to make effective decisions concerning their own health and that of their family and community.
